This indoor family session filled my cup! As a member of an all women photography group in Denver, we are able to tag our businesses for any referrals that are being passed on. Often times, they’re for weddings or elopements that you have to be in shape for because it’s happening on top of a mountain. But ever so often, a request for a photographer comes through that I know I’d be great for.
Enter The Groves
There was a posting about a mom that wanted an indoor family session that was fairly close to my home. So, I threw my name into the long list of photographers that had already said they could and would. A couple weeks later I found out that their budget fit my price, my portfolio fit their taste, and boom- they picked me! I know there were some incredible photographers on that list, so I was incredibly floored that they knew we would be a great match.
Fast Forward to the Best Day Ever
It’s always super freaking scary going to a family’s home that I’ve never met. Let’s be honest. It is. And I’m sure it is for them, too! I’m walking into a home that I have no idea how it’s decorated, how the family interacts, and if I will be killed. Haha! In all seriousness, lighting is always a legit concern. The Groves family home was incredible. I knew exactly how the final images were going to look before I even took the first photo.
They recently had a new little baby join their family that was an absolute dream. Sometimes you get to photograph babies that just don’t want to cooperate, right? Well, not this gal. She was wide eyed the entire time and stole the show. I caught several shots of her just gazing into her mom’s eyes (my favorite photo in all the land) and mom staring back. We popped around to different areas of the house (they have some serious interior decorating skills) where the light was yummy and the baby cuddles were intense. Ryan loves his new little lady and Stephanie was glowing. Beaming! Just an all around gorgeous trio.
I left there thanking God for not letting me die at another indoor family session, and for the Groves. Their final images are ones you could stare at endlessly. I hope to see the Groves in the future and get to photograph their daughter for years.
